's lead -- seven days later, and paul ryan still can't handle the truth. one week after president obama crushed the gop, congressman paul ryan returned to his day job on capitol hill today, carrying his own bags, like much of the republican party, he still seems dazed about the national rejection he took. and in an interview he told a local tv station what it felt like to lose. >> what it had become clear to us as things went on, in avirginia and ohio weren't coming together, that it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> and what did that feel like for you? what -- >> it was very disappointing. we had good days, bad days. it was a great experience. i'm very fortunate to have had this experience, but losing never feels good. >> no, losing doesn't feel good. but not learning the lessons of that loss isn't good either. at his core this election was about fairness, giving, everyone a fair shot. congressman ryan doesn't -- he doesn't get it. >> was this a referendum on your budget plan, do you think? >> i don't think we lost it on those budget is
. so has the gop listened and learned from the voters who defeated them? paul ryan is among the members returning to capitol hill today as congress gets back to work. so what does he have to say? >> it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues, which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run, so we ran the kind of campaign we wanted to run, and it just wasn't enough at the end of the day and we just have to accept that. >> big ideas, big issues that lost. it seems acceptance is the final stage of grief. let's get to our panel now. in washington msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "showdown" and here in new york joy reid, who is managing editor of the grio and william cohen, an author and columnist for the bloomberg view. if i can start with you, joy, if we might take a momentary break from days of lives centcom edition, this week is crucial for the president in terms of setting his agenda for the second term. >> the president now has to take the victory he won in the election which was decisive in an electoral sense, it was a landslide. and t
was also asked about congressman paul ryan's pecking order with the house republicans. let me play what he said regarding where paul ryan the vp candidate, now stands with him. >> congressman paul ryan is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh i wouldn't think so. paul ryan's a policy wonk. >> he's a policy wonk. basically right now i'm still the man. so how does speaker boehner, if he's the man and most reasonable guy in washington how does he get some of the conservatives, including even paul ryan a guy who is newly minted in some way with a little bit of juice, to come along? >> i think if you look at how this will actually unfold you find your answer tamron. the fact of the matter is a very small number of people will negotiate a deal or not. that includes speaker boehner. it includes majority leader reid and the white house. once they come up with a deal whatever it looks like it's going to be subject to an up or down vote. this isn't something you amend and say i'd like to offer an amendment to change that tax bracket. no, no. it's an up or down vote
oklahoma republican tom cole, what does he think about mitt romney and paul ryan losing this election? his take away is this. the paul ryan budget passed a pretty big test. we had to run around the country and defend it. the ryan budget proved itself a viable platform on which to run and be reelected. wow. just to reiterate, this is what happened on election night. how does this constitute the ryan budget passing a big test. it took a big test but it did not pass that test, two very deficit things. the lesson of this election for republicans appears to be all that stuff we ran on, it totally worked. think about what determines what the republican party does next. what determines how they fix their political problems. the question of who is going to be the new face of the republican party and how they will course correct after this disastrously bad election for them, it all depends how they assess what just went wrong and why it went so wrong. what do they think their problem is that caused the country to reject them so emphatically in 2012. the signs how their self-assessment is going so f
. remember that at the republican convention, paul ryan talked about or tried to blame president obama for the closing of the gm plant in janesville. last night, janesville voted for obama and biden over their own hometown candidate. >> isn't that something? >> and the surrounding county voted 60% for obama and biden. >> john nichols, great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. >>> did the war on women cost the gop the election? president of the national organization for women, terry o'neill, weighs in on that next. >>> then, ballots and bigotry. find out what the republicans need to understand if they want to take back the white house some day. the new political reality and americans' demographics, next. >>> this is what winning feels like. last night, america put a stop to an extreme right-wing agenda. we stopped planned parenthood from being defunded. we stopped roe v. wade from being overturned. we stopped health care reform from being repealed. that's a lot, isn't it? the gop's radical platform was clearly rejected and women had a major hand in making sure the clock on prog
's paul ryan on the urban vote. let's listen to paul ryan and his looking at this whole ethnic, or urban vote he calls it. >> we were surprised with the outcome. we knew this was going to be a close race. we thought we had a very good chance of winning it. i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout in especially urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> you know, ashley, they got to get their accusations straight. somebody on -- one of the leaders of the republican party out there in wisconsin said all the votes were fraudulent votes, they were all stolen. and now he's out there, the presidential candidate, saying they were all bought. and now this guy is -- i have to say to paul ryan, he was just surprised they showed up. he hasn't quite figured out the motive yet. >> i think the romney campaign obviously didn't take into account the huge turnout that the president got. that was one of the problems with their polling. >> is that why they're looking for new explanations? >> i mean, i think they're truly struggling to expl
. if there is anybody that comes across as the big loser of this election season, it's not mitt romney or paul ryan it has got to be karl rove. he prides himself as being the smartest man in american politics. he did get george bushel elected as governor and george bush elected as president but then he bragged about -- he was going to create the permanent republican majority and he sold that crap in the white house, and people believed him. did it work? hum, i don't think so. >> yeah how did that work? >> i don't think john mccain got elected, did he? >> no, i don't remember him winning. >> and i don't remember this guy -- mitt romney getting elected either. so then karl rove comes up with this american cross roads idea. of course the supreme court gave him a big give in citizens united, so they could raise this millions and millions and millions of dollars, and support all right-wing candidates and throw them into senate races, house races and the presidential race. and then karl rove goes on and some of the stuff he said -- he was so wrong. it's unbelievable. the "washington post
. paul ryan who i think will be a leader. you have a whole rising young generation. you have bobby jindal, nikki haley. new senator in texas, marco rubio, a whole generation that were just a year or two short from running this time are all going to be in the fray next time. i think they are future. all this soul searching about what ideology we're going pursue and i think it will be reaganite and conservative one. >> jon: that is charles krauthammer with his take with mitt romney on the g.o.p. candidate and the future of the republican party. he was one of the bright stars or bright spots i guess. all the other media seemed to be down on the g.o.p.. >>> i think that charles krauthammer is interesting in this case it's a majority view. most people definitely believe that party needs to look at itself. there is a lot of soul stepping that needs to go on. the assumption that blacks and hispanics would not turn out -- when you have this statistic staring you in the face, 50,000 hispanic americans turn 18 every month in this country you better take a look at the party. >> i agree with that. yo
the jeb bush/chris christie side of this ledger and the paul ryan/mike huckabee side of the ledger. >> richard vigory, the direct mail expert, he pioneered the field of direct mail. he put out a statement as a bugle call. i think you're on the other side of the fit. mitt romney's loss was the death rattle of the establishment gop. far from signaling a rejection of the tea party or grassroots conservatives, the disaster of 2012 signals the beginning of the battle to take over the republican party and the opportunity to establish the gop as the party of small government, constitutional conservative. john, react to that. >> i don't care about richard. i really don't care about him. what i want to say is this. mike huckabee gets diversity. he was an excellent governor and i don't agree with mike huckabee on everything but don't throw mike huckabee opposite of jeb bush. i think paul ryan gets it, too. >> ryan is an anti-immigrant republican. he took up all this language they've used. you know, mitt romney went on and talked about people self-deporting. when you do that and when you try
. >> of course. of course. hello, matt. >> mother sent me to come get you, father. paul ryan is doing feats of strength in the drawing room. she thought you'd like to see. >> i'd like to see him carry wisconsin. >> and now, for more entertainment news. bond took over the box office this weekend. "skyfall," the 23rd installment in the franchise, scored the highest weekend for a bond film, with 87.$8 million. >>> "lincoln" also fared well, making close to $4 million. daniel day-lewis would not break character on the set, leading people to believe he actually thought he was abraham lincoln. you think so? >>> the mtv music video awards took place sunday night. it turns out our friends across the atlantic love the same artists we do. taylor swift had a great night. and british boy band one direction picked up two wins. youtube sensation, psy, you know this guy, right? he won best video for his megahit "gangnam style." 367 million views on youtube. justin bieber was the top performer. and bieber's awards weren't his biggest news this weekend. after weeks of speculation, justin bieber and selena g
blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor
and paul ryan had won, they'd say they have a mandate r for imposing the ryan romney budget. the president talked about this issue. he says we need to ask higher income individuals to pay more to generate revenue, as part of the solution. part of the solution along with cuts, to reducing the deficit, so it's not as if this hasn't been an important part of the campaign argument. so we'll have to see how this goes. >> i'll look forward the to talking to you more about it. you know what investors are telling me, you got to go about four times bigger. >> i think the framework of the bipartisan commission is right and it would be great if our republican colleagues would adopt that. people like grover norquist have said that's just a subterfuge to raise taxes on the american people when in fact, it's a balanced approach to getting the job done. >> still to come, the keys to victory. how the president won and the voters who turned against the republican party. tonight, there are warning signs for both sides. john king at the magic wall. the man does not sleep. he is back. plus, after last night,
financial times." topping that list is paul ryan, the vice-president candidate returning to congress and has asked to continue on as chairman of the house budget committee. those are the people doing the negotiations. moving on to "the washington post." they know earlier wednesday barack obama call john boehner and others to urge them to put aside partisan interests to advance the interests of the american people. let's go back to your phone calls. from irving, calif., a irvingcaller. caller: i voted for mitt romney. host: what was your message? caller: i was like to say to get on and strain of the country. some of these callers are saying romney did not have a plan. he had a plan. he said it over and over again. i would call john boehner, it is time to compromise. you drop obamacare and we will raise the tax rate. let's get on with it and pass the bush tax cuts for another six months to straighten out the tax code. we took a stab at it in california. it can be done. the problem is nothing is easy politically. the other cliff we have to face is the budget deficit. we have to tackle it. that
paul ryan's role in this campaign and how that role was shifted or even erased halfway through. >> yeah. i thought that was -- that was symbolic of the state of the big debate and what both campaigns knew americans to believe about it. republicans were very, very excited to have a large philosophical debate and the appointment of paul ryan as vice presidential candidate when it was kind of a moment when they really seemed to think that they were going to get it. >> john: i thought so. >> paul ryan spent a week where he would talk about this debate. going to have the debate. when does the debate start? let's do it. it was good-bye paul ryan. >> john: why was that, jonathan? they didn't get the bounce in the polls because of his appointment or because of the stench comments? >> i think it was the fact that they never wanted to have the debate. >> john: really. >> they knew the debate was bad for them. i think they needed paul ryan on board. romney liked paul ryan but the campaign -- the only campaign that gave
me in welcoming the next president of the united states, paul ryan.
, pro-life core, he lost to bernie sanders in vermont. paul ryan, who called rape just another method of conception, paul ryan did win back his house seat, but he lost the vice presidency in rather spectacular fashion. and tom smith, who thinks getting pregnant out of wedlock is totally similar to getting pregnant by being raped, just put yourself in the father's position, he lost his u.s. senate bid to incumbent democratic senator bob casey of pennsylvania. republicans who were forced to campaign on their anti-abortion politics, by and large, did not fare well this year. but by all means, republicans, follow the anti-abortion movement's advice and campaign harder on your abortion politics next time. really. really, go for that one third of the electorate that thinks they agree with you on this issue before they've heard you really explain it. maybe you can petition to change the rules of mathematics so that 36% will add up to a majority. regardless, definitely talk more about rape, you guys. keep it up. ry to stump some political junkies with questions from bing elections. do you kno
working with or not working with paul ryan will be returning to the congress or the gang of six or simpson bowles, or anybody who is wrestling around with his issues, how you're going to make progress long term on medicare costs with als mimers which again now 6 million people, $172 billion. for a cumulative cost between now and 2050 is $20 trillion. that's a lot of money. and all the everythings and better management aren't going to change the fact that if people are in a state of dimension sha for a in a nursing home, that's a very costly process and i think it's very unfortunate that these issues did not get raised during the campaign. my friend in the audience here started up the american for curious that the idea that a cure is cheaper than beating a treating a disease. he and i met this morning and the meeting ran long and that's why i'm late and i apologize again for that. i do think that maybe this is just wishful thinking on my part but the urgency of the situation to make budget cuts that don't lead to the political destruction of the people making them, and i speak for both part
, the way i saw it. what mitt romney and paul ryan were doing was to shore up the republican base. the idea in the 21st century anybody would spend any time trying to determine -- and paul ryan is a part of that -- when is a rape ok, and when is rape not ok? someone said the next time they heard a republican questioning something about rape, i want to cut their tongue out. the conversation last night, he had to say that, because he could not eliminate his base. so i guess, the long answer, my point is that they spent too much time cobbling and shoring up their base and not enough time -- cobbling -- coddling and shoring up their base and not enough time elsewhere. they had the edge going into this election, and they blew it. host: calling the pollsters shysters. guest: some of them i would not trust on anything. host: let's go to pennsylvania. independent line, good morning. caller: if you could elaborate on two things. some schools have come out with studies that say if you watch fox news, you are less informed than somebody who does not even watch the news, and secondly -- and that is the
are already digging in their heels. speaker boehner, senator minority leader mitch mcconnell, paul ryan. all of them saying they will fight the president on taxes. all of them saying the president doesn't have a mandate. but president obama has something to say about that. >> i have one mandate. i have a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get into the middle class. that's my mandate. >> this is a clear message. it's what americans voted for a week ago. are you sure you want this fight, republicans? democrat from pennsylvania chuck fatah and ezra klein, msnbc policy analyst. he's writing about the fight over taxes today and the piece is called "the big question: how, not whether, to raise taxes." thank you for joining me tonight. >> thank you. >> good to be here. >> congressman, do you think republicans will make a deal or is this 2010 with the tea party all over again? >> well, what the public needs to understand is the income tax system is not fair to them. there is a report done by the congress each year by the joint committee on taxation. sh
